The translational movement could be modeled by both profile and UDF. My problem is that my walls have both rotational and translational movements as a function of time. What is your suggestion for that? Thanks

(you know the velocity will have both x and y components due to rotation) that's the problem using define_cg_motion is enough to employ the velocities at the wall? thanks four your concern
